Quality Physiotherapy Services with a Personal Touch


What is physiotherapy?

Physiotherapy, or physical therapy, is a health care profession which assists people to decrease pain, restore, maintain and maximize their strength, function, movement, and overall well-being for an improved quality of life.

Registered Physiotherapists are university trained, have an in-depth knowledge of how the body works and, specialized hands-on clinical skills to assess, diagnose and treat the symptoms of illness, injury and disability.

“Physiotherapy with a Personal Touch” means we take the time to understand your needs and goals.  Your initial assessment is scheduled for 1 hour, and subsequent treatments are booked every 30 minutes to ensure that your needs are being met. This approach allows us to better understand your injury or condition and provides more treatment time to promote recovery.

If your physiotherapist determines that you will benefit primarily from an exercise based program, she may also incorporate the services of a Registered Kinesiologist. Your physiotherapist will still direct your care and the three of you will work to achieve your goals.

Your physiotherapy treatments will likely include a combination of the following:

    • Manual (hands-on) therapy
    • Therapeutic exercise - range of motion, stretching, strengthening
    • Soft tissue release/massage
    • Acupuncture
    • Mechanical or manual traction
    • Taping - athletic, supportive, K-TapingĀ®
    • Moist heat/cold
    • Laser
    • Ultrasound
    • Hot paraffin wax
    • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)
    • Interferential Current (IFC)
    • Muscle stimulation
    • Education about your injury
